Local Places to Visit


Dubwath Silver Meadows

This is a Wetland Nature Reserve developed with the aid of Heritage Lottery funding. Dubwath Silver Meadows is just a 2 minute walk from Ouse Bridge Guest House. There is a boarded walkway along the wetter parts of the reserve and so there is no need for special footwear.


Cockermouth is a local town which is a 10 minute drive from the Guest House. Historically a part of Cumberland, Cockermouth is situated outside the English Lake District on its northwest fringe. Much of the architectural core of the town remains unchanged since the basic medieval layout was filled in the 18th and 19th centuries. The regenerated market place is now a central historical focus within the town and reflects events during its 800-year history.


Keswick is located on the edge of Dervent water, which is about 15 minutes drive from the Guest House. The heart of Keswick is the Market Square, ringed round with shops and hotels. There are no cars in the pedestrianised area which makes for a very pleasant shopping experience.
